Learning From History #6 - THE QUEEN WAS WORTH TRILLIONS
Over the past few years I have been very concerned that the world is repeating history. I know that many parts of the history that we are teaching our younger generation has been watered down and even outright twisted into a falsehood. This "history tweaking" is happening just because the truth might "offend" someone. I know for a fact that this history twisting has happened because many of my family members lived through and remember World War II.
In this series we are going to study the difficult parts of history that might have recently, intentionally or unintentionally been overlooked.
Since the queen of England recently passed away, I thought it important to learn the truth about her wealth. Today, we are learning that the queen was worth 17 trillion!!! That is more than enough money to END world poverty. Yet, she is portrayed as such a caring and compassionate monarch - How can a loving person hoard such wealth while watching her country men & women suffer??
(The Scripture passage below occurred when the Apostles were on trial for speaking about Jesus Christ):
And the high priest asked them, saying, “Did we not strictly command you not to teach in this name? And look, you have filled Jerusalem with your doctrine, and intend to bring this Man’s blood on us!”
But Peter and the other apostles answered and said: “We ought to obey God rather than men.”
Last time we learned about the "Victory Garden" (click HERE to view that post).
TO BE VERY CLEAR - I am NOT and NEVER will support or encourage any kind of violence nor any kind of crime. I am simply highlighting these truths to AVOID REPEATING HISTORY.
We will be looking at queen Elizabeth the 2nd's carriage, investments, property, other priceless items, and from where much of her inherited money came.
We will begin with her carriage:
Firstly, we must learn that the queen had "rules for thee but not for me":
The queen's investments:
I tried to research death duties (a.k.a. Inheritance Tax) and I learned that in the U.K., any estate over 325,000 pounds is required to pay about 40% taxes on the value of that estate!!. That means a 325,000 pound estate would owe 130,000 in taxes!!! That's outrageous! No wonder the queen was worth trillions - robbing from her subjects.
From where did much of her inheritance come?
The queen Victoria truth below is probably going to be just as difficult to fathom as all of these truths about queen Elizabeth II.
In my opinion, "the powers that be" have omitted these truths from our education so that their wealth can continue indefinitely - NOT SO!! God wins!

Oh, goodness. I have a draft written about the queen similar to this one. A blogger recently suggested we pay our respect by donating to one or some of the queen's favorite charities. There were hundreds of them!! I immediately thought how her wealth hoarding could have helped so many people and I wondered how much did she ever donate. She didn't appear to me to be very caring or compassionate. Living nearly 100 years and never worked a day in her life!! History books do not tell the truth or just enough of it to get by. I'll be interested in reading this series of yours. Thanks so much for linking up at the Unlimited Link Party 83. Shared.ReplyDelete
